Photos: Maurice Hooker Dominates Cristobal Cruz in Mexico

Super lightweight contender Maurice "Mighty Mo" Hooker (22-0-3) returned to the ring in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico - and won a ten round unanimous decision over former champion Cristobal Cruz (41-20-4).

The scores were 100-90, 99-91, 99-91. This was Hooker's first fight back since returning from eardrum reconstruction surgery (tympanoolasty) in December. 

The Dallas native fought three times in 2016.

Hooker, 27-years-old, was supposed to return to the ring later today as part of the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard to Miguel Cotto's ring return against James Kirkland. 

The whole card was scratched when Kirkland reportedly suffered a broken nose in sparring.  Hooker's promoter Roc Nation Sports then placed him on a show in Kansas City that card was also canceled.

Hooker went 2-0-1 in 2016 with two first round knockouts.  He battled former interim champion Darleys Perez to a draw on the Sergey Kovalev-Andre Ward undercard in his most recent fight. Cruz just fought in February and picked up a win to snap a four fight losing streak.

This wasn't even a fight cruises so shot it's unbelievable he's lost a third of his fights...

Mo didn't get all savage on Cristobal, good. It was work, not contention.
